"John Lotherington is a Program Director with Salzburg Global Seminar (SGS), where his work continually brings him back to democracy and sustainable development, and their inter-relationship, as key cross-cutting issues for present and future policy-making across the world. The SGS seminars bring together present and prospective leaders, from countries worldwide and from diverse professional backgrounds, including government, business, NGOs, academia, the media and other sectors to challenge each other’s thinking from diverse perspectives, identify the major issues and opportunities facing them and the world in the decades ahead, and better inform their decision-taking and opinion-leading. Sustainable development is a key concern for SGS.
"John began his career in history education and maintains an interest in that area. His publications as editor and author include Years of Renewal: European History 1470-1600 (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 2nd ed. 1999); The Seven Ages of Life (London: Centre for Reform, 2002); The Tudor Years (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 2nd ed. 2003); and introductions to The Florentine Histories by Niccolo Machiavelli (New York: Barnes & Noble, 2004) ; The Book of the Courtier by Baldesar Castiglione (New York: Barnes & Noble, 2005), and Inferno by Dante (New York: Barnes & Noble, 2013) ."
